Penguin Board Game

The Great Penguin Bookchase

So the holidays meant lots of relaxation and family time and what's better than a few board games thrown in there? 

At my home, we're not big into board games (we're all a tad too competitive), but me and my mother love the Penguin one. Below are some pictures of the gorgeous game - including a cameo by my adorable niece!

So as you can see, the game is looks like Trivial Pursuit and that is the easiest thing to compare it to. Each colour represents a category of books and you have to answer the question correctly to receive a book of that colour. First person to have all six books on their bookshelf wins!

 Aren't these little books the cutest ever??? I wish I could just use them as decoration!

 I was the purple bench and yes I was losing badly. Especially on the red books, which represent the poetry and theatre section - such hard questions!

 But with a little help from my friend, I managed to win once!

Overall, this game really is amazing. If you are a book lover, it's a great way to learn more about the classics and to have a bunch of "fun facts" for your next book club meeting!
